The St John Film Society comprises a group of local filmmakers and film enthusiasts who have joined together for the purpose of exposing St John audiences of all ages to film and filmmakers from throughout the Caribbean and beyond. Their focus is on independent films that feature Caribbean-related cultures and issues. The society is not-for-profit and operates under the financial umbrella of the St John Community Foundation.
Director of Programming and Documentary Film Director, Andrea Leland, has been a long time design client and I was pleased for the opportunity to create a new logo for the organization.
Worked in tandem with an external marketing agency in developing the latest version of the company website in 2019, designed with WordPress in a news blog format with a focus on published articles from American Locator Magazine. Subscribers to the print version of AL received full access to all online articles as well. My duties included management of all articles, graphics and design related coding/style changes on the site after its initial launch. I also took the lead on management of all site subscriptions, invoicing and correspondence with customers, utilizing WordPress Woo Commerce integration.
The site also provides customers/clients with access to past articles, information on company events and ways to sponsor or advertise with Planet Underground and American Locator. I made use of Google Suite / Drive to allow storage and access to company Media Kit and other digital download products from the site.
I designed these signs using photography from my home gardens to showcase native plants and promote a safe landscape for the pollinators that depend on them. Illustrator and Photoshop were used to combine elements for the sign design. I often create designs that incorporate natural elements and help to promote awareness on the importance of preserving our natural world.
I designed this graphic based off imagery and statistics from the original 2018 DIRT Report published by the Common Ground Alliance, an organization that compiles statistics on the causes of underground utility and infrastructure construction damages in order to help facilitate remedies to future incidents. This graphic is for a 2019 editorial article in the industry trade magazine American Locator.
Poster design for the 2014 documentary film Yurumein: Homeland. The film recounts the painful past of the Caribs on the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean, their extermination at the hands of the British 200+ years ago, the decimation of their culture on the island, and their exile to Central America where much of that culture survived, even thrived.
I designed the home site for the film to reflect the colorful tropic themes and hues of Caribbean culture and maintain an easy to navigate flow of information. The site was designed to also link the visitor to other films by Andrea and ways to purchase these online. She also wished to allow visitors to easily join her mailing list on Caribbean culture topics and be able to make donations to future film projects. Screenings are listed where the film is shown to a live audience both in the U.S. and abroad.
